Register of Deeds and Rev. A. G.
Kirkman, did the marriage feat of his
lifejyesterday afternoon by uniting two
brothers and two siaters in matrimony
bonds at one and the same time. The
parties were: Mr. Warner L. Jones to
Miss Ella S. Miller, and Mr. Settle W.
Jones to Miss Jennie S. Miller. The
ceremony was performed nt the home
of the brides uncle Mr. D. L. Miller.
near Hickory Grove church, in Friend
ship township and was witnessed by
some twenty or thirty-five relatives and
neighbors of the young couples. The
brides were beautifully attired. After
the ceremony had been performed the
party was invited into the dining room
where an eloquent repast was served by
Mrs. D. I. Miller and Miss Mable. Mil
ler. The brides were originally from
Pennsylvania, but have resided in this
county for several years. Their father
has been dead for some time and their
mother died last year.
Soon after the young ladies went to
live with their uncle, the Messrs Jones
who live near there, began to pay them
attention, the double-header marriage
ceremony yesterday being the result.
One of the most interesting features of
the ceremony is that the older brother
got the younger sister and the younger
brother got the elder sister.
Parties here, who are acquainted
with Nat Crump, the Davidson county
outlaw, who shot Clay Scrubs, and
later fired into another crowd of white
men, putting riflle balls through two
mens hats, are suggesting that the ne
gro who killed the Asheville police of
ficers, and two negroes Tuesday night
is Crump, and not Will Harris. Crump
like Harris, escaped from the
penitentiary, but unlike the Mecklen
burg outlaw, was open and bold in his
lawlessness, and always a crack shot
with a rifllo, After breaking out of
the penitentiary, Crump j went back to
Davidson, but a reward of f 1,000 for
his capture offered by Clay Scrubs
caused him to go west, and the last
time heard from, Crump was some
where in the Asheville section. As an
evidence of Crumps fine workmanship
with a rifle, a gentleman here from
Davidson relates that in Crumps last
villianous was waylaying of a party of
men in a buggy, he declared he had not
wanted to kill them, but only scare
them and so simply shot through their
hats, just above the head. That is
where two of the men found the

GIRL BRIDE SENT HOME.

Raleigh, Nov. 17-Today the little
girl-bride, Amanda Carter, who is evi
dently but little over 13 years of age
was sent to her mother, whose home is
Ty-Ty, Ga., the Sunshiners having rais
ed the money to pay thn railway fare.
The little creature was departed by belt
boy-husband, who seems to have been
but a little over 16 years of age in this
city about 2 months ago and has been
most kindly cared for since -by new
friends who .become grea.ly attached
to her. Her case is a very sad one.
Little and young as she is, yet it seems
that she was regularly married by a
minister in the house of her mother to
a boy who attended school and who, it
is said lives in Boston. She says that
he claimed to have been born in Cuba.
She has never heard a word from him
since he left her. He told her she would
never see on hear from him again and
that he was going to Richmond. The
child is so small that her head barely
comes to the shoulders of an average
girl of 12 years of age.
A & N C Trains Now Crossing
The first train to cross the bridge be
tween Morehead City and Beaufort,
passed over Saturday afternoon at four
o'clock. This item at first thought
conveys but very little information, but
on reflection can be considered of the
utmost importance. Over fifiy years
ago the good people of this section
taxed themselves to build a section of
jftilroad to connect the mountains of
North Carolina with the Beaboard. The
building of the A & N C road from
Goldsboro to Morehead City accomp
lished a part of the desired purpose but
not quite. :-
Beaufort is the capital of Carteret
county, a registered seaport town with
fairly good harbor, traffic as passen
gers heretofore have been transported
in an uncertain way between the two
towns. The completion of a track
across that channel means great things
for Eastern North Carolina. Cape
Lookout is one of the finest seaports on
the AtUntic coast and will eventually
be a great government coaling station,
as well as an outlet for the shipping of

American Ornithological Association.
There were over three hundred dele
gates present from all parts of the Uni

days. Professor Pearson gave a lect
